The March Revolution
DOWN WITH THE AUTOCRACY!!! DOWN WITH THE WAR!!!!
Towards the end of the 1800s, Russia and Japanese fought for the territory of Korea and Manchuria. Although the two nations signed various agreements over the territories, Russia disregarded the agreements. This angered Japan and they went to war with Russia. During the war Russia encountered many losses. Due to the huge amount of losses Russia suffered civilians led a revolt while the war was still raging. At this time Czar Nicholas 11 was czar, many people disliked him because of these various losses.
While Czar Nicholas the 2nd was in power people were not happy, they had poor working conditions, less personal freedom, and no elected legislature. Due to the unhappiness of the Russian people 200,000 workers marched to Winter palace in St. Petersberg in order to fight for what they wanted. This event became known as Bloody Sunday it caused waves of strikes and rebellion. Due to these circumstances Nicholas created the Duma to oblige to his people's commands. Although the Duma only lasted 10 weeks, because Nicholas did not wish to share his power.
In March 1917, women textile workers shouted, down with the autocracy, and down with the war! In Petrograd they started a citywide strike, in time this caused riots to start due to shortages of bread and fuel. Due to the March Revolution, Nicholas the 2nd abdicated his throne. Shortly after his entire family was murdered. The death of Nicholas the 2nd was the end to czar rule.
Soon the provisional government was taken over by the Bolshevik, also known as the Red Giants. Lenin, the ruler of the Bolshevik takes all power over Russia. With his power over Russia, Lenin distributed farm land to Russia, gave factory control to workers, and lastly signed the treaty of Brest- Litovsk. Although the Bolsheviks did great things for the Russian people their was still anti-bolsheviks. Anti- Bolsheviks did not agree with the territory given to Germany, the murder of the royal family, and lastly Bolshevik policies.
